BUILDING SUCCESS
VOLUNTEERISM:
Over the past year our dedicated volunteers have taken
on a variety of initiatives including partnering with Habitat
for Humanity to build a home for a family in need. In
December, our Volunteer Committee adopted St. Mary’s
School, and in doing so we helped prepare and serve the
St. Mary’s Christmas Dinner, and collected enough toys
that every child was able to receive a Christmas gift. In
addition, a bus full of toys and other items were given
to the Salvation Army. Our volunteers commit to serving
the local communities where they live and work, and
enjoy making a difference.
